What to Expect
Before a dental implant is placed, a thorough examination will be conducted by our dentists to assess the strength and health of the jawbone and gums. If the patient is a good candidate for dental implants, digital X-rays and physical impressions will help our dentists to determine the ideal location for the dental implants during the procedure. The individual will be put under local anesthesia and sedation if needed while our dentists place the titanium post into the jawbone. Over the course of 3 - 6 months, the bone and implant will fuse while the bone heals and once the dental implant is secure, the false tooth or teeth can be attached to the dental implant using a connector. Our dentists will adjust the dental implant and false teeth for a snug and secure fit.
Most patients experience little to no discomfort following their dental implants are finished, however some patients may have short-term soreness and discomfort that can be relieved using an over-the-counter pain killer, such as Tylenol® or aspirin. To prolong the life of dental implants, patients should have a good home dental care routine that includes brushing, flossing, and rinsing with antibacterial mouthwash. Regular appointments at DentalWorks - Fairlawn in Fairlawn, OH for dental cleanings and oral exams are also important to implant care. Dental implants can last a long time with correct care, however dental implants will eventually require repairs or replacement.
If dental implants are considered medically necessary, the patient's dental insurance plan might pay for some or most of the costs. However, elective dental implants are ordinarily not paid by insurance plans. During the patient's consultation, the office staff of DentalWorks - Fairlawn can confirm their insurance coverage and discuss payment methods and financing available through our office.
